AWARD-WINNING DRAMA TRI BOWS IN CALIFORNIA


Ahead of a wide Summer release, the inspiring drama  TRI screens in Long Beach, California on Thursday, June 2nd

The film, which recently walked away with the top prize at the Northern Virginia International Film & Music Festival, is presented by TRIBE - Triathlon Club of Southern California and screens at the Art Theatre of Long Beach at 7pm.  

In addition to a screening of the award-winning movie, the evening features a Q&A with associate producer Julie Moss and actor Shawn Pelofsky. There will also be a raffle and a chance to meet and connect with fellow athletes and TRIBE sponsors.

A portion of the proceeds to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation.

In addition to winning Film of the Year at NOVA, Jai Jamison’s inspiring drama snared the NOVA Award, Best Actress (Jensen Jacobs), Best Family / Faith Based Film, and Best Inspirational Film. 

TRI was also a Runner Up for Best Cinematography (Feature Film) and Best Editing (Feature Film).

The film also recently won the Indie Spirit Best Story Line Award from the Boston International Film Festival.

TRI is an inspiring, emotionally-charged drama about a medical technician with a history of not finishing things who is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for her first Triathlon.  The film’s potent garland of performers includes Jensen Jacobs and legendary TV star Tim Reid.

Natalie (Award-winning actress Jensen Jacobs), an ultrasound tech with a history of not finishing things, is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for a Triathlon. Natalie is introduced to the strange (and aerodynamic) world of triathletes and meets a colorful cast of characters as she trains for the Nation’s Triathlon. With the support of her new teammates, she digs deep to discover just how far she can push her mind and body.

TRI is the first scripted feature narrative about triathlons that has been developed for theatrical release. Triathlon is the fastest growing endurance sport in the world and was the fastest growing of all sports in the UK in 2014. There are over 600,000 athletes registered with USA Triathlon, and over 3.2 million worldwide.

Although the film uses triathlon as a backdrop, the niche target market for the film is female runners. Of the roughly 20 million finishers of running events in 2014, 60 percent were women.

The concept of TRI is to raise awareness and hope for those who are seeking compassion or understanding while dealing with cancer as a caregiver, a patient and a survivor.

The writing team for TRI includes a two time Ironman finisher and professional triathlon coach who has led cancer awareness programs; a cancer survivor; and, an award winning screenwriter who has lost loved ones to cancer.

Jensen Jacobs, Shawn Pelofsky, Jaylen Moore, Chris Williams, Kelly Spitko, Tim Reid and Walker Hays star in a Jai Jamison film, written by Theodore Adams III, Monica Lee Bellais and Jai Jamison. The Executive Producers include Kimberly Skyrme, Regional Casting Director for House of Cards, and Russell Williams II, a two time Academy Award winner.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
